Researcher position; invitation to apply for a MAGNIMS fellowship 2017

ImaginEM

We are looking for a researcher (physicist, engineer or neurologist) with experience in advanced magnetic resonance studies, who wants to apply for a MAGNIMS fellowship and conduct a 1-year research project in our laboratory.

The main objective of our team is to understand the basis of disease evolution in multiple sclerosis through advanced magnetic resonance techniques. We aim to identify imaging biomarkers of physical and cognitive disability and of response to conventional and new therapies.

We also develop technical improvements in order to use them in the translational research to the patient.
We have recently applied improved tractography approaches to described the presence of structural connectivity changes in the brain of persons with multiple sclerosis and their consequences on attention and executive performance.

The project will involve elucidating the changes of brain connectivity in diffusion imaging along the disease and the evaluation of the reproducibility of the connectivity data.
We encourage candidates to send a CV and a letter of research interest and goals before January 27th 2017 to sllufriu@clinic.cat.
